Reviews of Double Dead Guy Ale

Review by Aaron D. Campbell on August 31, 2010

B+ / 3.8

Appearance – Deep amber color, thick frothy white head that dissipates leaving behind thick lacing.

Smell – Citrus hops and malt. Still light, but not near as light as the original Dead Guy Ale

Taste – Citrus on the front, opening to a more complex fruity flavor, finishing with a slightly cocoa and a lingering bitter.

Mouthfeel – Medium-bodied with a fair amount of carbonation.

Drinkability – Not a bad beer, a little too fruity for me. I definitely prefer the original.
